Piano Fantasy — William Joseph

21 10 2010

One of the pieces that inspired me to write “Elvin’s Waltz”, “Piano Fantasy” is a ridiculously hard one to play, mainly because of the fast tempo + lots and lots of octaves which tire out your arm and make it feel like it’s going to fall off.  I’m learning this piece right now and playing it slowly but even at a slower tempo, it still kills me.  Nonetheless, I think it’s pretty damn impressive, especially considering Joseph was in his early twenties when he wrote it.  Kudos to him.
